It’s jaw dropping when the perfect storm of Congressional tone deafness, meets the mindset of the oligarchy with the illogical fallacy of gun control.
To what am I referring?
On Thursday, Senate Democrats gathered on the steps of the Capitol to announce a new push for tougher gun-control laws.
While Democrats exploiting the death of children and unarmed victims for their own political gain is not a new phenomenon, the abject hypocrisy in how they do it is always mind boggling to me.
You see, these Democrats, including NY Sen Chuck Shumer and Oregonian Sen Ron Wyden, made the announcement while surrounded by a dozen armed guards who were in ADDITION to the regular detail of Capitol Police who protect Congressmen.
So in Washington DC, whose city council is doing EVERYTHING they can to subvert he rulings of the courts in order to deny the Second Amendment to its citizens, these Senators have the gall to prance around with their own, heavily armed, tax payer funded, private use army while the peons of the “servant class” have to fend for themselves unarmed, to announce MORE restrictions upon the right to keep and bear arms.
The hypocrisy of it all would be hilarious if it weren’t so tragic.
And the restrictions of course wouldn’t do anything to stop criminals from using guns to kill people because the last time I checked murder was still illegal and that doesn’t stop the criminals. The gun control measures just make it more difficult for law abiding citizens to exercise their God given rights.
Gun Controllers love to throw scary sounding words around when they push for more Constitution shredding. That’s why we have the bogus term “Assault Weapon” applied to sporting rifles.
The measures proposed by the Democrats include old favorites (yet in reality non existent things) like the “gun show loophole” mixed in with new ones like the “illegal gun pipeline.”
Unless Chuck Shumer is talking about the time the Obama Administration smuggled weapons to the Mexican Cartels in Operation Fast and Furious, I don’t have time for his nonsense.
And of course, the ubiquitous “improved background check.” Simply put, be treated like a criminal and give the government MORE information before exercising your rights.
Yet somehow, if you support the idea of require ID’s in order to vote you are a vile racist who is trying to usurp democracy. Gun Controlling Democrat hypocrisy knows no bounds.
The most egregious thing that was said while these Senators were armed behind their wall of guns was muttered by Sen Wyden of Oregon.
“The victims and their families deserve better than a Congress that shrugs its shoulders and waited for the next tragedy. They deserve action.”
No Senator, they don’t need “action” they need the Government to get the hell out of the way and let law abiding citizens exercise their right to keep and bear arms in order to protect themselves.
Unlike you, We the people don’t go around with a small army on the taxpayers dime.
